Trevor Bayliss was a stroke playing middle-order batsman and brilliant cover fielder, but it was as a coach that he made his mark.
Bayliss took over from Steve Rixon as New South Wales coach for 2004-05 and experienced immediate success by guiding the side to Sheffield Shield title and backing it up the following summer with the limited-overs trophy.
He was appointed as Sri Lanka coach in August 2007, surviving the terrorist attack on the team bus in Pakistan in 2009, leading them to No. 2 in the Test rankings - their highest position - and the World Cup final in 2011.
After standing down, he took jobs with Sydney Sixers (June 2011), which he led to success in the 2011-12 season of the Big Bash, and Kolkata Knight Riders (January 2012), which he led to success in the 2012 season of the IPL. He also guided New South Wales to another Sheffield Shield title in 2013-14.
Bayliss was interviewed by the ECB in 2014 while England were searching for a replacement for Andy Flower and, with the Australia Test team returning from the UAE, coached the national side on a short-term deal in a T20 series against South Africa at the start of the 2014-15 international season.
Originally from Goulburn, Bayliss moved to Sydney to play for New South Wales and had his best season in 1989-90 when he scored 992 runs at 55.11. His haul included two centuries and six fifties and he was voted the state's Players' Player of the Year. He captained the Blues in a match against Queensland in 1990-91 and appeared for his state in 58 first-class games over eight seasons.
After he finished playing, Bayliss became a cricket development officer for the NSW Cricket Association and was a long-term Second XI mentor before taking the top job. He was offered the England coaching job in May 2015.

The memoirs of a fan who has seen the excellence and the excesses of the country's cricket
The month of November was all about the stars of yet another glorious Ashes series
Since 2000, only on six occasions has a team defended a target of 175 or below and only Zimbabwe and West Indies have been unable to chase targets below 150. This week, we look at the lowest totals that have been successfully defended in ODIs
He is known to work hard on the field but not get the wickets he seemingly deserves. Harsh but true: it's because he doesn't bowl enough wicket-taking balls
With the 175 that announced India's arrival on the one-day stage
